When you pick up your next edition of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine in February, our very own Miley Cyrus will be on the front cover in a gorgeous blue Giorgio Armani Silk Top.
And the 17-year-old Hannah Montana babe opened up about a lot of things in her life. On the infamous Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair Photoshoot where she appeared topless, she said: “Here, my parents are thinking they’re seeing a beautiful photograph by a major photographer, and the people of America want to see something dirty in that? It doesn’t make sense to us because [my family] doesn’t look for negativity. But people don’t want to say ‘What a great performance’ or ‘What a great shot.” No one wants to look at something like that and see the positive because it doesn’t sell a magazine.”
She also talked about the pressures of being in the public eye 24/7: “My job is to be a role model, and that’s what I want to do, but my job isn’t to be a parent. My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act, because I’m still figuring that out for myself. So to take that away from me is a bit selfish. Your kids are going to make mistakes whether I do or not. That’s just life.”
The Disney Darling also commented on the forthcoming movie, The Last Song, where she met and co-starred with Liam Hemsworth, who is now her boyfriend: “I got on the plane [to Georgia], and I was lying in my mom’s lap and crying and saying, “I’m so happy to be getting out of L.A. I went out every night with my friends. I did karaoke. I danced. All this stuff would’ve been such a big deal in Los Angeles: Who’s she with? Why is she dancing? I felt so alive and real. It’s so much easier to know who you are when there aren’t a thousand people telling you who they think you are. I felt like I was really figuring myself out. Usually I have someone whispering in my ear, but I was on my own.”
And lastly she spoke about her insecurities despite all the adoration of her fans: “I used to ask everyone all day, ‘Do I look pretty?’ I probably asked that question about as many times as I blink.” But in Georgia she finally got over it. “It’s not about how because I started feeling beautiful; it’s just because I was comfortable. I was so used to the paparazzi and the cameras and the ‘What are you wearing?’ and having people stare at me.”
You can pick up the Miley Cyrus Edition of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine from 12th January 2010.
